The Nation’s Only Craft-Brewer Owned Cooperative
The Independent Brewers Alliance is a community of over 140 craft brewers (and growing). The IBA leverages combined member-buying power to save money on raw materials and operational expenses. Savings programs currently include cans, lids, chemicals, labels, hops, PPE, all kinds of packaging, branded glassware, bottles, kegs, cartons, freight, office supplies, design services, insurance, consulting services, payroll processing and more.
Our staff does the negotiating with leading industry suppliers. Brewers participate only in the savings programs that are right for their brewery. Brewers who join as Member-Owners can easily recoup their cost of membership and more by participating in just one savings program. And brewers who join our Affiliate Program can access some of our most popular programs while paying no dues at all.
The IBA is currently accepting applications from qualified craft brewers. Feel free to explore this site. See a complete list of member savings programs. If you want to learn more and apply for membership, contact Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our easy, no-obligation member application.
What Our Brewers Say
“I can’t believe how much money we are saving through IBA! It’s unbelievable! We will definitely be looking into more of the IBA programs soon. Can’t thank you enough for what you guys do.”
– Dylan Sultzer, Brew Master, Defiance Brewing – 1,100 Barrel Brewery
“Our brewery has seen flat to declining sales and increasing costs. That’s where the IBA comes in. It’s negotiated pricing in a number of areas we could never have gotten on our own. The savings pay the cost of our membership many times over.
– Dan Barrett, Controller, Upland Brewing – 15,000 Barrel Brewery
“The IBA is saving us money on every can – money that we plow right back into our marketing program to keep our business strong and growing.”
– John Haggerty, Brew Master, Warped Wing Brewery – 8,000 Barrels
“With the IBA working on my behalf I now have buying power I could only dream of with my current barrelage. This takes the pressure off me to grow barrels to get better pricing.”
– Mike McGarvey, CEO and Founder, 3 Stars Brewing Company – 7,000 Barrels
